MATTHEW E. WHITE and the band just finished their month-long trek across Europe, and they have quite a bit to show for it, like a sold-out headlining date at London’s legendary Queen Elizabeth Hall and some fantastic press and sessions they did along the way. One article caught our attention in a special way as it paints a portrait of not just how White came to be “2013′s finest newcomer,” but also how Spacebomb was born.
“You’re only going to see the whole Spacebomb picture when it’s a collage of records”
May’s issue of Uncut Magazine, available worldwide, tells author John Mulvey’s story of dropping in on Richmond for a few days to see how Spacebomb makes it its home. White, Cameron Ralston, Pinson Chanselle, and Trey Pollard all help him understand what Spacebomb is and what people can expect from us in the future. It’s also a detailed account of White’s beginnings, from painting the studio where Missy Elliott and Timbaland frequented to his insatiable appetite for meeting those who have been a part of the golden age of recorded music, and finally to bringing to life a vision of a label that employs time-tested methods and superior musicianship to make great art that stops in interesting places.
